Pirates to take C Tony Sanchez
A baseball source has confirmed that the Pirates plan on taking Boston College catcher Tony Sanchez with the No. 4 overall pick in less than hour. According to one baseball source, the Pirates have also already reached an agreement with Sanchez on a signing bonus worth approximately $2.25-2.3 million. That would be below “slot” for the fourth-overall pick, but would leave the Pirates plenty of money to be agressive in later rounds.
Here is a scouting report on Sanchez.
